Day 3: First Day on the Disney Cruise!

The day finally arrived! Time to make it over to the cruise port!

I recommend finding some kind of ride to the port. If you take public transit, expect a long walk with your luggage to the actual port. We were lucky enough to get a ride from our airbnb hosts for a small fee.

Check –in was a breeze because we had already done all the pre-boarding paperwork online. Before we know if we were already pool size relaxing in the sun drinking a Diet Coke and eating ice cream. I was way too excited to find out they were serving Diet Coke on the ship! Living in Norway sometimes I miss the little things.

A little tip for when you first board: They have an area on the ship that you can make or change your spa and dining options (on the Magic it was in Beat Street). We went down and put in a request to have a window seat during dinner. This is also where and when you can make large party reservations for Palo. Online or by phone you can only reserve up to 6 seats together. They had no problem making a bigger reservation at this time.

This is also a time where the kids clubs have an open house. These spaces are amazing and would recommend taking a peak during these open house times.

Once we were allowed to return to our rooms, we had a fun surprise from Small World Vacations (who we booked the cruise through), fresh cut flowers! They were so pretty in our room all week.

Other than that everything was about the same as our Alaska cruise. I guess the only real difference is that every time they made an announcement they made it in both Spanish and English.
